DENVER, Aug. 16 (UPI) -- Josh Rutledge tripled home the go-ahead run in the seventh inning Thursday, lifting the Colorado Rockies to their fourth straight win -- 5-3 over Miami.

It is the longest winning streak for the Rockies since they won five straight over the last four days of May and the first day of June.

The Rockies trailed 3-1 heading into the sixth, when Michael Cuddyer tied it with a two-run homer.

After Rutledge put Colorado in front with his RBI triple, Rutledge scored on a fielder's choice grounder off the bat of Eric Young.

The win went to Adam Ottavino (4-1), who allowed a run over three relief innings. Rafael Betancourt worked a perfect ninth for his 22nd save.

Ricky Nolasco (9-12) worked a complete game for the Marlins, giving up nine hits. The Marlins have lost six out of eight.
